This canoe was part of the STEAM display (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) at Artisphere. Unlike concrete shoes, this concrete canoe floats very well. It is part of a competition by Clemson students each year to design, model, create, and race a concrete canoe. Historically, Clemson has place very well in the competition and competes on the national level.

The tents on the South Main Street bridge stretch in front of the 2014 sculpture of Ten Artispheres, which honored 10 years of Artisphere in Greenville at that time. (So it’s 12 now!)

Artisphere grew a bit larger this year, moving further down South Main Street and into Augusta Street.
